Romney Runs From Big Bird Backlash -- Refuses To Answer Kids Questions On Nick (Like Prez Did)

Last edited Mon Oct 8, 2012, 03:41 PM - Edit history (1)

________________

President Obama's peeps say Mitt Romney is gonna be sorry for blowing off a bunch of kids who participated in the Nickelodeon show, "Kids Pick the President."

The premise of the show -- kids submit questions to each candidate and based on the answers they make their pick for leader of the free world.

Obama answered the kids' questions, but Romney said he didn't have the time.

Deputy National Press Secretary Adam Fetcher tells TMZ, "It's no surprise Romney decided to play hookey. Kids demand details, and I'm sure they want some answers on why Romney could increase their class sizes, eliminate their teacher's jobs, raise taxes on their families and slash funding for Big Bird."

Fetcher ends with this zinger: "'The dog ate my homework' just doesn't cut it when you're running for President."

2. Romney is such an unlikable

dipshit. I never thought I'd see the day but this asshole has even less personality than shrub.

This would take him maybe 15 minutes and he says he doesn't have time, fucking putz.

10. So President Obama WINS!

This is Romney's own fault. Who told him it would be a good idea to threaten Big Bird on national tv with 67 Milliion Watching?

12. Because Romney doesn't care about YOUR children. Hell, he can hardly stand his own.

Remember, Grandpa Mitt goes first in the buffet line because he hates to wait for the little ones. He pushes the boys' faces into the butter. He holds babies like he's afraid they'll give him a disease.

And he wants to kill Big Bird.

14. Does the Weekly Reader still do a poll? Often it is a fairly accurate predictor. Not perfect but

close.

15. weekly reader

. . . got my first rock and roll record off of those pages. I ordered it for pennies and the square record with Tom Petty and the Byrds singing, 'So you want to be a rock-and-roll star?' came pressed between the newspaper pages.

good question.

16. Just too busy lying

Romney doesn't have time to respond to Big Bird, Ryan doesn't have time to lay out the details of his "deficit reduction plan." What time do these two characters have? Surely, no time to be straight with the voters.
